It would appear the only losers are pensioners, now i wonder
what the banks and financial sector loses. So nothing has changed
has it and where is that royal commission.?

Interest rates are the lowest for 500 years said an expert the other day.
Very hard for retirees to get a return on funds.
no wonder so much money is going into real estate.
when that bubble bursts, its gonna get ugly.
